About Split and Dalmatia

Dalmatia is one of the oldest and the largest region of Croatia. The region encompasses the area from the town of Zadar in the North to Dubrovnik in the South. Apart from Zadar and Dubrovnik, it integrates also the towns of Šibenik, Trogir and Split. However, it is not only the big regional cities that attract visitors from all over the world but also the small picturesque settlements and villages in their vicinity as well as the sunny islands and peninsulas. With the beauty of its landscape and rich heritage, Dalmatia represents the Mediterranean as it once was.


Dalmatian islands are the true pearls in the crown of Dalmatia. From the islands in the northern Dalmatia such as Pag, Ugljan, Žirje, Pašman, Dugi otok and Kornati, via larger sunny islands in the mid Dalmatia such as Hvar, Brač, Korčula, Vis and Lastovo, to the islands of the Southern Dalmatia like Mljet, Elafiti and the peninsula of Pelješac – Dalmatian islands will strike you with their cultural heritage and natural beauty.


Let yourself immerse into the magic of the coastal Dalmatia by exploring its long beaches, crystal blue sea, beautiful unspoiled nature and rich tradition. Or you can unveil Dalmatian hinterland rich with rivers and lakes, full of diverse flora and fauna, where the traditional crafts are still alive and everything emanates a special charm and tranquility, characteristic only of a region where people live in harmony with nature.


Split is a Mediterranean city, situated on the Marjan peninsula at the centre of the eastern Adriatic coast. Because of its favourable geographical position, Split has a typical Mediterranean climate, with long, dry, warm summers and short, mild, rainy winters (yearly average of 900 mm of rain). The average summer air temperature in Split is 26°C (79°F), with 12 hours of direct sunlight (year-round average of 7 hours).

Split is the cultural and political centre of Dalmatia (a historical region, once much larger, now stretching from the city of Karlobag further north along the coast to the Cape Prevlaka near Dubrovnik), and is the official seat of the Split–Dalmatia County. Approximately 180 000 people live in Split, making it the second-largest city in Croatia. It is also the jumping-off point for exploration of the coast and islands of the beautiful Croatian Adriatic.

The official history of Split stretches back for 1700 years, when the Roman emperor Diocletian built his palace (emulating the form of the Roman military camp) as a place to which he would retire after stepping down from the imperial throne. However, preceding Diocletian's palace, the site held the Greek colony Aspalathos, meaning the plant called Spanish or weaver's broom (Spartia juncea). The plant is still numerous, especially on the southern slopes of the park-forest Marjan.

Many of Split's historical and cultural buildings can be found within the walls of Diocletian's Palace. In addition, it boasts several museums (including the Archaeological Museum, the Museum of Croatian National Monuments, and the Split City Museum), several galleries, theatres (Croatian National Theatre, City Youth Theatre, and the City Puppet Theatre), and cinemas. Split is also a university seat and host to numerous scientific institutions.
